‘Time is money’ is an old cliche but there are few industries where it holds as true as it does in accounting practice. Time is the revenue model for practicing accountants so making it as productive as possible is critical.

What’s more, access for you as the accountant won’t cost you anything. Having the capability to access and edit records instantly, at anytime, no matter where you are in the world means that you can offer more value to the businesses that you work with.

Big Red Cloud’s accounting package has the capability to produce over 100 reports in a number of formats such as Excel or PDF. This means that the critical information that the business owner needs to help his business be successful can be easily access by you. With search and individual field filters you can drill down to get data as specific as you need it to be when producing reports for your clients. Information such as aged debtor and aged creditors are readily accessible. This means that you can spend more time creating a comprehensive overview of your clients business rather than searching for the statistics.
